Subject: A rare example of an "Industrial Musical"
Many of these shows featured performers between shows, as well as the (uncredited) works of top-notch writers and composers. Wilson Stone, who worked on several of these musicals, commented: "It's an easy thing to write a song about love. It's hard to write a song about spark plugs."
With the availability of high-reslution video projection and multi-media presentation technology, these stage shows became less and less frequent, fading out completely in the late 1980's. Still, they have their fans, there is a collectors market for many of the "original cast albums" that were given away (many being the only reminder that these shows ever existed), and they remain an odd memento of times past.

This particular film appears to be a dress rehursal of a Chevrolet sponsored industrial musical. Sit back, enjoy, and don't forget to sell!

The video takes the viewer on a whirlwind adventure across the United States, depicting various appetizing markets and how to sell to them. From the opening chorus number "We're Your Market" to the various U.S. sales regions popping up like gophers from the map and singing solos, this legendary work of the stage will leave you breathless.
After, of course, rolling on the floor clutching yourself in hysterical laughter, screaming "NO! NO! MAKE IT STOP, PLEASE! AHAHAHAA!"
This musical will help you realize why people thought the original live-action Batman & Robin was so spiffy and swell.
